N3XTD: 3D engine

Post by tmyke »

Hello ;)

The purpose of this post is to present the project N3XTD.
What N3XTD ?

N3XTD is a small 3D engine project, developed specifically for early PureBasic.
It is an adaptation of the Irrlicht 3D engine. Based on version 1.5, it takes the engine well known, shaped and adapted into a 3DEngine
easiest access possible to the greatest number.
Under development, it will eventually for most features of Irrlicht and an integration of a physics engine.
For now, all the examples (about forty) are not super impressive, but mainly in a pedagogical objective.
It is a nascent project, free access, and OpenSource.

This project is multiplatform, run fine under Window, seems to work without too much problem with Linux, by against I have found no
fan of MAC to try on this platform.(There is also a version for C/C++. which will be available in the coming days.)

Link:build 20 (feb-05-2010) is here->http://www.n3xt-d.org/_download/n3xtd.zip
for install, unzip the archive, and copy all folders inside the PureBasic directory. That all.

Source of the engine:

Very nice. :)


I noticed a problem though, the examples stay running in the background when you close the window.

What I would love to see in a 3d engine is a system for handling large terrain. Like a chunked LOD system. I know it's a lot of work though.
I love Purebasic.

It's strange. To close the application, it is necessary to press' ESC key'. Otherwise, the release of resources may not be clean.

As soon as I finished the first full version N3XTD, then I would see for a number of additional elements, like
large terrain of which you speak.
Although the current engine of terrain allowing already quite large and important zones. ;)

Yes it does!
I recognize my terrain on the demo ;) so i have the perfect sense of the scale of it in comparison ...

Normal, I integrated the code of the terrain engine Dreamotion3D inside N3XTD :D

Yes, and you let Dreamotion3D title in function iCreateGraphics3DWin().
Anyways, great work. Waiting for updates.... ;)

Thanks, I will take another look. What I'm looking for is a terrain system which is capable of having a view distance of many kilometers, while being memory/GPU/CPU efficient.
I love Purebasic.

Indeed, such a system terrain is not found in all engines, especially those with the qualities.
N3XTD is open, then it will always be possible to see what can be done. :wink:

For the next update, I work on the functions related to the GUI, so there will be the functions ICursorControl. ;)

@tmyke,
Which version is better: The PureBasic or the C++ version? And why?

tell you which version of N3XTD?
In this case it's the same. only examples of C + + packages are fewer, only for lack of time
(PB processing codes in C++ code).

or your question is: is it N3XT above his big brother Irrlicht?
In this case, it is not easy to answer yet.
It will make the point a few times, when the modification of native engine, and the various additions are well advanced.
Strength and wisdom.
